Nudge 41

Ephesians 6:12: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Fact: the day we claim Jesus as our Lord and Savior we have a giant target on our back.
We have set our eyes on the prize. We know we don’t belong in this world. This is not our home. Our home is with Jesus in heaven for eternity. But, while we are here we have work to do.
We must realize first of all who we are up against and then Who’s team we are on. These verses in I Peter really say it best:
I Peter 2: 9-12: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us.”
Know who you are up against. Fight the good fight. Rest in the power of our omnipotent Lord!
